This morning, I noticed this item on ESPN.com. I don't know much about Marvel Smith, but obviously the Steelers have great confidence in him if they're giving him this much money. However, this sentence in the article bothers me:
"Another key element: Despite three full seasons in the league, Smith won't turn 25 years old until August, and locking him up for six more seasons means the Steelers won't have to worry about the crucial left tackle position for a long time."
Thanks, Len. Why don't you just jinx him? For some reason, I foresee an injury-filled two seasons for Smith, after which he's released by the Steelers. I hope that doesn't happen, but I've got a bad feeling about this.
